Call to Artists- MiGlo Walking and Biking Trail
Miami Lakes, FL – The Town of Miami Lakes is looking for a local artist or art team to design and complete an outdoor glow-in-the-dark permanent public artwork to transform an existing trail.
Powered by the sun, the Miami Lakes MiGlow Walking and Biking Trail will provide a luminous path for pedestrians and bicyclists to enjoy. The goal of this project is to create an attractive, inspiring, and lit path that will attract residents and guests. Similar glow in the dark trails exist in the Netherlands, Poland, Australia, and Singapore. The Miami Lakes MiGlo Walking and Biking Trail will be the first of its kind in South Florida and Miami-Dade County.
The commission is made possible by a 2019 Public Space Challenge grant, a program of the Miami Foundation with support from Target. The Miami Foundation Public Space Challenge is an idea contest open to anyone in Miami-Dade County with an idea for creating, improving, or activating our local parks and public spaces. This year, the Foundation focused on mobility which connects residents to each other and the places they live.
For more information about the project or to submit your artwork, please go to: https://bit.ly/37cE1Nu. The proposal submission deadline is on Tuesday, January 21, 2020. The artist will be selected in March 2020 by the Miami Lakes MiGlow Artist Selection Committee.
